Savannah River Bridge Run

Posted by PenAimie on Dec 2, 2009 8:21:06 AM

Well, I did it.  I registered for "The South's Toughest Bridge Run"!  Remember, I am NOT a racer.  Heck, I'm not even comfortable calling myself a "runner" yet.  I still do a LOT of walking on a 5k.  But I'm over 50 years old and I'm up and moving.  So I'm pretty pleased with that!

 

I have 2 lady coworkers who DO consider themselves to be runners and they both told me that they will NEVER do the SRBR again!  OMG!  What have I gotten myself into?

 

Until I talked to them, my only worry was the wind on the bridge (196 feet above the Savannah River).  I don't do well with cold winds.  So I bought a new running jacket with a hood so I can keep my head & ears warm.

 

Anyway, I'm excited to get to participate in the Savannah River Bridge Run!  There were 4000 participants last year and this year the field is limited to 4500.  I'm just going to start in the back & if I stay there the whole time, that's just fine with me!

 

I'll post again in a few days.....
